1) Choose Your Halloween Candy Wisely
By choosing your Halloween candy wisely, you’ll be helping to protect your kids. Healthful treats can keep them healthy — and happy! Take a trip to your local health food store to see what’s on offer. You may find more organic, healthful options that aren’t full of artificial ingredients, as well as fair trade chocolate or even homemade baked treats.
2) Get Creative With Your Decorations
When it comes to adding eco-tips to Halloween, you’ll find that it’s even more fun! You don’t need to shop for plastic decorations from the store: take advantage of what nature has to offer and decorate your home with leaves, pumpkins, apples and natural candles. Don’t forget to utilize reusable plates and cutlery instead of disposable items in order to be the greenest ghost in town.
3) Recycle Your Halloween Costumes
Eco-friendly tips for almost every situation will have you learn how to recycle, reuse or re-purpose so that you don’t have to purchase new products. And Halloween is no different because there are many ways that people can use old costumes and re-purpose them year after year. By trying any of these ideas, at the end of Halloween everyone in your party will wind up with a costume they love rather than throwing away a bunch of ones they may not like!
4) Reusable Halloween Bags
Halloween is a time for ghouls, goblins and monsters! To take your trick-or-treating experience to the next level, go green by carrying a reusable bag when heading out. Making use of already available bags or even decorating existing ones with Halloween print will add some fun and whimsy to your night of fright.
5) After Halloween Is Over
When it comes to reducing your carbon footprint, we all have a lot to do. Small steps go a long way. It’s not always easy, but that’s why it’s important to choose sustainable options whenever possible and start with those when considering how you want your Halloween celebration to go down this year. What you do after the event does matter so don’t forget to reuse old pumpkins and decorations or try reusing them next Halloween because everything really can be reused this time of year! If you did end up buying a costume that won’t get worn again, lend it out or donate it! Change is something we can each affect every day and every night in our own little ways, just like how everyone’s entryways may vary in entries depending on style, so make it yours!
